Stay Cool This Summer!
Summer is almost here and with that comes the end of the school year! It is time to clean out lockers and book bags and say goodbye to schoolmates and teachers. As a child, we looked forward to the end of the school year and the freedom of sleeping in with no homework to worry about. As a parent, we think “Oh no, school’s out - yikes!”
Never fear parents, there are many summer activities available at the Kroc that include swimming, recreation, and educational opportunities, as well as sports camps in August. I can almost guarantee you and your family haven’t experienced all the Kroc has to offer!
This month, we also celebrate Father’s Day. This is a time to let Dad sit back and relax. In our house, this means we eat out at Dad’s favorite restaurant, which is a treat for everyone. Fathers are important role models to children. The Bible tells us in Ephesians 6:4, “Fathers do not exasperate your children; instead, bring them up in the training and instruction of the Lord.” Fathers – you have a big job to do. We pray you will bring up your children to know the Lord.
The Philadelphia Kroc Center is proud to partner up with our friends from the Pro Sports Experience to give kids ages 6 - 14 the opportunity to learn from the best this summer. Participants will get to run and play for a week of fun in non-contact football fashion. Former Phildelphia Eagles and qualified coaches will be instructing kids on athletic and skills development with competitions, tournaments and games!
Join in the fun Monday, July 25 through Friday, July 29, 8:30 am to 11:30 am daily. Sign up for this great football experience or for more information visit our Recreation Department in the Gymnasium.
